20 October 09.00-18.00
IDEATE is the kickoff event for the Rhodes Incubator (RI) this year.
RI is a student-run support network for entrepreneurs within Oxford, drawing upon the diverse expertise of current students and alumni. IDEATE starts off the incubator activities with an all-day problem solving and team formation programme where you will start to work on turning a budding idea into a tangible venture. The projects that have come through the incubator in the past have not all been for-profit enterprises. Additionally, all have had a strong social drive at their core. This event welcomes a wide range of people – from those who have had no entrepreneurial experience to those who have worked on start-ups before. No prior ideas are necessary – simply the passion to work on something that doesn't currently exist. Throughout the day, we will have entrepreneurs, investors, guest speakers and incubator alumni to support your development through private mentorship and speaker sessions. Join us for an exciting day of mapping out what problem-area you want to be working on and finding like-minded people to make this happen.
